Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Land (Rudyard Kipling)
Not that long before Peter Bellamy took the exit route , he was at Herga Folk Club , depping for Louis Killen who had been at Fylde , bellowing with Tom Lewis & Co , and had no voice ! Someone who shall be nameless tried a 'Stitch Up' on Peter and requested The Land - As his 'favourite' Kipling/Bellamy - and was quietly perusing the lyrics in a book while Peter was singing . Peter spotted this , and without missing a word or a note , walked 'Off Stage' , took the book out of 'pillock's' hand and walked back on stage and finished the song to slightly more applause than any one expected . One of my happier Bellamy memories .
